**Triangle, listening state: Sedated but cognitive functions unimpaired.** Are You Happy? - Immediately taken aback by how Bob Dylan-esque this all sounds. The instrumentation is a treat. I hear some sounds that epitomise the "Beach Boys" to some extent, so it's a good example of what the genre would become. It's pretty beautiful. Only Dreaming Now - Western much? Mystic Western music!!!!! Oh my god.... This is so amazing. I feel like I'm playing DnD with Arthur Morgan. Fuck off. This song is amazing. The violin work is gorgeous. It's so... Weird. They mix gypsy music and even accordion with what makes up psychedelic rock... But it's not rock.... But it is? It's amazing. This one is a musical orgasm for sure. The Painter of Women - Once more, Spaghetti Western subverted. Space spaghetti western? Moon Knight walks by a saloon in the city of Valentine in RDR2. Song to murder gunslingers to as a fantasy vigilante. So good I might add it to my playlist. "He is known through the land as the blind gentleman"????? Daredevil, then. The lyrics are bizarre. Deeply weird. It reminds me of Working Class Hero by Lennon in its folk hero lyrics. The Keeper of Time - Back to Alabama and bluegrass, pretty alright. But nothing too inventive. I take that back, this is another musical orgasm. Very Dylan-esque, almost Gainsbourg-like in its composition. I can even sense how it influenced bands like Dio or Blue Oyster Cult decades later. This was petty ballsy for sixty seven. It Won't Get better - This one is straight up Dylan. I don't know what to say about it. I fuck with the rhythm and the trumpets, they give tempo to the vocals-- The rhythm is simplistic until we break it down, they use percussion brushes and whips to give this tshk sound to drums. It takes some inspiration from the forties and fifties and brings it into psychedelic. Nine Pound Hammer - Maxwell's Silver Hammer? I can see the parallels. But it's more akin to some... What?! That guitar riff was so Eric Clapton, I can even hear some Physical Graffiti in there with the scale. The vocals are extremely great and mastered with harmonies in the background, easy to dismiss them at first, but they add to the song. The drumming keeps on with the brushes and whips. And the guitars weep, using bottlenecks and slides to get the perfect squuiiiiiiiier. Banger of a song. Would play this to muffle the sounds of a murder. Magic Hollow - This is gypsy magic!!!!! This is fantasy before fantasy existed!!! This is Dio before Dio existed!!!!!!!!!!! What is this sorcery? I can hear how Black Sabbath took inspiration. It's gorgeous. No, it's magic. The violin.... I'm in love? This is a song I would genuinely want to see in a movie where two characters get high and have sex. This is the sensuality of crazy. And I've Seen Her - Little country bluegrass ditty that feels somewhat out of place at first but I'm not falling for that again. It's going to switch up and leave me gobsmacked. Harmonica work is good? I don't know what else to compliment, the rest of the album's great production makes it into this song but this just feels slightly out of place after Magic Hollow. Ouch, the ending. Triangle - The eponymous and main track of the album... It starts off big with blaring horn and honestly kicks off like a campaign of dungeons and dragons. You feel like an adventurer leaving the Shire, like Bilbo Baggins. You feel it. Great depictions of greenery. "TRIIIIIIIII-AAAAAY-AYYYYY-ANGLE!" This is a precursor to what even Tame Impala does nowadays. Amazing song. Musical orgasm achieved. The Wolf of Velvet Fortune - Great arpeggio guitar start, makes you feel mysterious and like you're in a dangerous camp of bandits as an assassin. Unfamiliar breeze? Very Witcher-esque. A cross between Altaïr and Geralt. The flower crying for the sunlight is akin to humans living in darkness and this song is the light it brings to the blind. The mysticism of the lyrics definitely make this album something entirely different and the beautiful melodies and harmonies of this song make it my favourite of the entire album. Will definitely add it to my playlist and use it for my writing. It's a "delight" as the song puts it. It has Turkish undertones but goes back to being very spoken-word at times, with only the Spanish-ish arpeggio. It's a perfect song.I shed a little tear, to be sure. This song does not overstay its welcome, it's as long as it needs to be to finish the tale of our journey through the land of Triangle. We are reaching the end... "Goodnight" indeed. The harmonies kill me.... Wow. Old Kentucky Home - The last track goes back to being happy, which is a bit odd-- Seeing as it was mystic beforehand. But this song starts off with the simple joys of Kentucky. It's a very earnest song. It breaks into a choir, a full blown choir celebrating the sunshine on his old Kentucky home. It's bittersweet. We went from magic and mysticism to... Kentucky. And it feels reassuring. Especially when you hear "I don't care 'cause I'm alright." A great finish but not a showstopper. Final Score -- This is a concept album. This isn't your everyday country album. As far as saying it's aged better than the Beatles, I'm going to have to somewhat agree and somewhat disagree. I can say it has kept influence, even if people do not realise it, up to modern psychedelic and a lot of its elements have influenced a wider range of genres but the Beatles still do influence just as much, it's more focused within pop, a genre that I "dismiss" oftentimes. Overall, it had an amazing production and quality and I think it deserves a solid 4.2/5.

The soundscapes and lyrics are densely packed into the very brief songs, which are an expert mix of folk rock and psychedelia. This album caught me completely by surprise. Best track: The Wolf of Velvet Fortune

At less than 30 min. this is a reminder of how much shorter albums used to be. Track 2 sounds like King Crimson might sound without Robert Fripp's guitar. I guess this LP was released before King Crimson's first so this could be the  influencer rather than influencee. Track 1 and the vocals in general sound like Bobby Dylan. This is a lovely contribution to the short but sweet psychedelic era. I'm glad the psychedelic era didn't overstay its welcome. I guess the record company execs had not yet  started to reward music created by formulae. On the last track psychedelic is left behind as the album ends with an excellent  foot stompin,  bourbon drinkin, good ole boys tune. I have no clue where that came from but I'm glad it dropped in.

Qué buena sorpresa de disco. Una mezcla balanceada de folk y psicodelia, a veces me recuerda a Rodríguez pero con mejor producción y obviamente a Dylan, pero con menos factor "gato enojado". Me encanta el detalle de los metales en el fondo. Mis favoritas creo que son "It Won't Get Better" y "Nine Pound Hammer"

Very San Francisco. Elements of folk, psychadelia, bluegrass, flamenco, and classical music come together with fantasy-esque lyrics to create a surreal album that transcends classification. Lead singer Sal Valentinto's vocals echo Dylan in tone and delivery, but are unique in their own way. This album deserves several listens at the least.

Fun folky psychedelic pop, but ultimately feels like a sanitised and glossy version of Incredible String Band. Give me ISB any day. Some of the song are great - painter of women has some great vibes, and the cover of Nine Pound Hammer has something to it.

Pónganse su corona de flores y reúnanse alrededor de la fogata, que traigo la guitarra y vamos todos a cantar, oh!!! Este disco está bueno: canciones alegres, muy buen manejo del multitrack y de la estereofonía (dura, muy ad-hoc a la época). Este es probablemente el mejor disco de folk de los que he escuchado hasta ahora de los que propone esta página, y aunque no es mi género favorito, creo que se merece la calificación. ¿Are you happy?

Been sat deciding on this one for a while. It's some quite interesting folky music with a bit of country (bluegrass maybe?). I like Magic Hollow, The Wolf of Velvet Fortune and Triangle. There's so many instruments in this album (drum kit, string quartet, acoustic guitars and effects, accordion, shakers, bass, horn section, chimes, harp maybe). The way they use the instruments is really good and add loads of variety, probably the best thing about the album. The singer has a great voice and loves his vibrato. The music can be quite atmospheric, and doesn't feel too Square Dancey, it's something you can actually sit down and listen to. Sometimes stuff with too much variety will go in directions I don't like, but it's the most exciting and intriguing folk album I've ever heard. But, I'm still not fully sold on folk.

1960s folk-rock and psychedelia are not my favourite flavours, but this is pretty good! It's a dreamy, hazy 30 mins of acoustic songs with touches of rock and country. There are a couple of weaker tracks, but most of the songwriting and musicianship seems strong, and the whole thing is coherent and atmospheric. Since it has managed to make an impression on me, despite not being in a style that I generally enjoy, I think this has to be 4/5.

A l'ouverture de notre cher et tendre générateur, mon enervement fut palpable en ce mardi matin. A moins de 24h de l'écoute de la bouse allemande de NEU!, pourquoi diable retrouvons nous ENCORE des artistes aussi peu connus et influents dans cette liste? Néammoins, cet album de Matts Hummels fut de très grande qualité. Problème: la durée ridicule de cet album. Pourquoi s'infliger des heures de Minutemerde, Slayer ou encore Elvis Costello, quand la bonne musique est cantonnée à quelques 25mn d'eclaircie? The Beau Goebbels démontre une fois de plus sa fainéantise légendaire, lui qui s'était on le rapelle endormi sur le parvis du New Nick a quelques minutes de son concert en 1971.

Very much a classic 60's psychodelic album. Largely I think it kind of get's lost in other albums in the era. But something that jumped out at me was there seems to be a strong country influence that wasn't seen as heavily in rock music at that time.

Elements of mid-late Beatles, with a fair amount of Jethro Tull flair thrown in. Lovely string arrangements and meandering song structure. Good listen.

I really enjoy coming across these kind of lesser known psychedelic nuggets. This one seems to be straddling a couple different musical trends of the era: 1) psychedelia and 2) incorporating more overt country influences back into rock music. Those seem like almost diametrically opposed musical directions but they blend it well. Plus, you have some Wrecking Crew members, and even Van Dyke Parks himself, adding some more sophisticated playing to the arrangements.

Jetzt hatte ich das Gefühl, dass die Verteilung des Sounds auf die Kopfhörer nicht gut war. Entweder stand ich seitlich oder ganz mit dem Rücken zur Musik. Die Stimme war nicht immer überzeugend, aber die Musik war ganz angenehm und abwechslungsreich. Kam insgesamt leider nicht richtig in Stimmung und deswegen würde ich ihre Zukunft in meiner Sammlung als „ungewiss“ bezeichnen.

Ihan mukavaa hippirokkia. Biisit ei ole kuitenkaan riittävän tarttuvia että tätä jaksaisi enemmän kuunnella. Yksikään biisi ei jäänyt mieleen erityisen positiivisesti, joskaan ei myöskään negatiivisesti. Tai no levyn päättänyt rallattely oli ihan mukava kopio Country Roadsista. Vahvaa keikkumista kakkosen ja kolmosen välimaastossa.

Erstaunlich gut. Ich wusste überhaupt nicht, was mich erwartet, aber ich fand es besser, als die meisten Alben bis jetzt. Am besten hat mir "The Wolf of Velvet Fortune" gefallen. Ich hab irgendwann in der Mitte des Albums gelesen, dass der Drummer der Band nach dem vorangegangen Album gegangen war, weshalb möglicherweise viele der Stücke quasi ohne Schlagzeug waren. Aber auch hier find ich den Mix nicht wirklich gut gelungen. Ich bin mir sicher, dass das mit daran liegt, dass das Album aus den 60ern stammt, aber es stört mich leider trotzdem.

Ganz schön Catweasel‘ish und nebenbei das beste Dylan / Honky Tonk Album, das Bob nie gebracht hat. Ich weiss nichts über diese Hippies außer, dass sie sich um eine ausgewogene Produktion bemüht haben. Wirklich toll abgemischt (headphone music, but the „Nine Pound Hammer“ nearly hurts). Wäre weniger Ziegentremolo in der Stimme wär‘s ein wenig weniger theatralisch und entsprechend den Songs „ernsthafter“ (wo doch der Jung in der Mitte aufm Cover aussieht wie der Sadist Gendry aus GoT) Fanfarige 3.2

The jewel in the Beau Brummels' crown, Triangle was an unexpected departure from the band's earlier hitmaking formula -- and demonstrated Ron Elliott's growing maturation as a songwriter. All the band's signature styles (folk, country swing, and Brit-pop) are still heard in the mix, but the tunes here assume an added aura of mysticism. Too long ignored by rock cognoscenti, Triangle is (all hyperbole aside) a fine album that deserves to be heard by a wider audience.

Psychedelic meets 60s folk music. It's fucking weird and out there. But I like that, it's something different while also being really familiar?

It was a folk album. It was probably one of the early ones or something like that as for why it's on this list. I liked it throughout the album, but it suffers from the main problems of 60's albums in that they're a bit samey, the lyrics sometimes make no sense, and the mixing is pretty bad. However despite these cons, it's still not that bad. Favorite track: Are You Happy?

This sound of this album isn't what immediately comes to mind when I think of the Beau Brummels. It certainly fits in with the musical vibe of its time though. It's a little musically scattered, as a lot of albums apparently were in the late 60s. You have baroque pop mixed in with psychedelic and folksy rock, which doesn't always work. But it grows on you a bit as the album progresses. The guitars are really lovely as are the strings, but some of the songs have too much going on in them.

2.5 | Navegando a ciegas de nuevo. Lo primero que es obvio es que de nuevo estamos metidos en psicodelia, aunque no se siente tan pronunciada; como tal se oye mucho folk más de inicios de los 60s todavía entremezclado, e incluso un poco de música pop. Esto hace que la música se escuche psicodélica pero de alguna forma inocente y alegre; como si estos hippies estuvieran más preocupados por que "todas las personas sean amigos y se unan" que por "expandir sus horizontes de percepción." Las canciones tienen una tendencia extraña a parecer que alguien le bajo al switch y se apagó todo... terminan como de golpe sin sentido. El siguiente punto bien notorio... parece que está cantando Bob Dylan, enteramente se siente como una imitación (no se si deliberada o incidental) solo que en lugar de "maullar" aquí mete un vibrato grado guajolote correlón; se oye como un Dylan cantando un poquito mejor, pero nada impresionante. Las letras normales para lo que se espera; interesante ver tanta cosa de fantasía alta tal cual se siente Tolkienano en algunas partes. Me siento un poco como cuando escuchamos a Moby Grape... Grupo psicodélico bien hecho pero tampoco espectacular. Me agradó bien el disco pero tampoco me queda mucha tentación de volver a escucharlo o añadirlo a listas.

Bootleg Bob Dylan, not very interesting. A few catchy songs but nothing substantial enough to warrant talking about.

Passable 60s psychedelic rock, stylistically clearly based on the British band invasion but this is mostly forgettable and occasionally dreadful. The Wolf of Velvet Fortune is a rare diamond in the rough.

Hmmm, jo. Jag hör likheter med deras samtida Beatles. Lite sång i kör och dylikt och känslan jag har under stora delar under albumet är att jag lyssnar på budget-beatles. Under dom partier blir det lite småtråkigt och dom övertygar mig inte varför jag ska lyssna på dom istället för originalet. Men det är andra gånger där soundet går lite åt ett annat håll och det genast blir lite intressantare. Bäst: "The wolf of velvet fortune"

Song 1, 4, 11: not a fan. Song 2, 3, 5, 8, 9: ok. Song 6, 7, 10: enjoyed them. Many songs are a bit too country for me, and as mentioned before I'm not a fan of vibrato, but overall it was decent. Difficult decision, but ultimately 2 stars as I don't really like it enough to listen to it again.

Sounds like The Zombies with the lead singer doing a Bob Dylan impression... I like the style but nothing really stuck to me.

Beau Brummels? Nog nooit van gehoord. En dat het wat mij betreft ook een reden: Ik snap echt niet wat dit was. Het klinkt als een soort persiflage. Maar het schijnt bittere ernst te zijn met die Brummels.

I had never heard of these guys, nor the album. It was fine, late 60s US folk.

Wanna be Bob Dylans try their hands at folk/psychedelic rock with fairly bland results. 60's reverb abound. Best Tracks: Are You Happy?; It Won't Get Better; Magic Hollow

50. Triangle - The Beau Brummels 11 tracks. There were elements of this that I liked, (strings at start of Only Dreaming are amazing), & strings consistent throughout the album, but despite me also liking the vocals I wanted more.... punch! 2/5

First off: weird album cover. Second, the singer's voice reminds me a lot of Bob Dylan, but somehow quite worse. Nothing really stuck with me on this album, save for maybe one or two tracks. Favorite track: "Magic Hollow"

Ha, don’t know about this one. Not sure I took it seriously. Lighthearted early ‘pop’ sound from the 60s. A little reminiscent of the Monkeys? Lead vocals are unimpressive, none of the lyrics really reached out and grabbed me and Painter of Woman reminded me of Bob Dylan, a few songs even, who I’ve never been impressed with. Was hoping to maybe find a diamond in the rough but gave up on that after the inspiring ‘Magic Hollow’. Surprised it’s in the 1001 before you die list; pretty sure I could have died happy without ever hearing this album. Almost went with a 1 star but figure it’s a product of it’s time. ‘Old Kentucky Home’ may have also saved the 1 star rating but song still wasn’t anything to write home about.

Genre: Folk Rock 2/5 A mid-to-late 60s UK Bob Dylan ripoff. The style is so delightfully ripped off that it became miserable to listen to halfway through. Bland, uneventful, shallow pop folk that sometimes feels like you're trapped in a renaissance fair. An album so bland and uneventful, my girlfriend and I hadn't realized that the playlist was set on repeat and the album had started over again until it was 2 songs deep again. This is yet another example of an editor masturbating himself over a deep cut album with no merits beyond its copy-and-paste style of the times. "You've never heard Triangle??? DUDE! It's so BLAND, you'll LOVE IT!" Totally skippable, not essential, and I still can't believe Days of Future Passed is not in this book, and this Beau Brummels deep cut made it.

Sounds adjacent to lots of music I like, but just not doing anything for me. I can hear why the singer's voice is compared to Bob Dylan; maybe it's just an acquired taste, but I haven't acquired it yet in the same way that I have for Dylan or Geddy Lee. Overall not terrible, but didn't find much in terms of bright spots.

In general, I'm just not all that fond of "psychedelic rock." This album is no exception for me, but it did serve an important purpose: it helped me figure out why I've never really liked that subgenre. It didn't make sense to me for the longest time; after all, as an aging wanna-be hippie, I fit the bill. Listening to this album and really not liking it as it played, it finally occurred to me that one of the things I don't like about psychedlic rock is it's designed to be trippy and weird, but it comes across as too self-conscious and self-referential for me. I like discovering on my own the weirdness and the unusual in art, music, and life; I don't like things that self-proclaim their own weirdness. Anyway, even removing this album from all that, I'm still not interested. Moving on.
